Beautiful barns, amazing and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
We have been to the barn before and absolutely love it. It is warm, comfortable and inviting. We had a gathering of 14 friends (the remainder were in the Duleep Barn which is equally fabulous). We even got to look around the main building, Blo Norton, which has a most delicious looking kitchen. If you are looking for a retreat, this is it. Our whippet also loves it there!

The biggest downside is the lack of Internet. It is likely that we would come here more often if we were accessible to our staff and could work remotely. Since there is a lack of phone coverage and no internet, it is hard to communicate with anyone. It is also hard to communicate with arriving guests. It may be fine in the summer when you can walk down the path for a phone signal (but no internet) l in the winter it isn't ideal.

Nevertheless, we will return, just not as often as one might wish to!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to let us know about your stay. Your feedback is most wel come. The lack of Internet and decent phone signal is an issue that we are working on. We will be carrying out further refurbs to other properties on the estate and are currently waiting for the survey to come back from open reach, it's pointless just dealing with one area when we have other properties that will also benefit. We are hoping to have sorted sometime this year. We look forward to seeing you back with us again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous place to stay. We were two families, 4 adults and 4 children in total and it was spacious and cosy at the same time. We had everything we needed and the place is beautifully furnished with comfy beds. I would absolutely recommend a stay here. I would also like to add how wonderfully warm the place was, toasty in fact, which is a great achievement in the big open lounge room on a cold and drizzly weekend.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
The property is well presented and furnished; we had a great weekend, enhanced by very warm weather. The location is good to visit nearby attractions, although we spent most of the time relaxing in the very peaceful surroundings. The property was very clean and tidy and the accommodation provides good en-suites for two bedrooms, and a bathroom for the other two bedrooms. Everything was as we expected and if I had to find a desired improvement then some nice relaxing chairs for the garden would be great.
Thanks for an excellent week-end.

Look forward to seeing you again in the future.

The Village itself is surrounded by quiet lanes, ideal for walking, cycling and painting and is close to Redgrave and Lopham Fen. Blo Norton Hall is the perfect choice for a relaxed stay in the East Anglian Countryside.

Blo Norton is situated close to the picturesque Norfolk and Suffolk Borders making it ideal to explore all that both counties have to offer.

Blo Norton lies on the River Little Ouse which separates Suffolk from Norfolk.

The Hall reputedly provided the setting for Virginia Wolf’s short story The Journal of Miss Joan Martyn. In the story the main character, Rosamund Merridew, is a historian researching England's land-tenure system
